Polish Cultural Evening
(Berlin, ICD House; March 25th, 2013)
One of the major focuses of the miniseries is the vodka of Poland, and specifically the long-running dispute over the origins of one of the worlds most widely consumed spirits. It was therefore fitting that interns had the opportunity to sample a number of Polish vodkas in the interludes between episodes. The Polish tradition of eating pickles after drinking vodka was an alien concept to most, although this proved to be a popular manner of consuming the drink, and we were also treated to cheese and homemade Polish baked goods.
All in all the event proved to be a success with a good turnout, and was a fitting way to say goodbye to many of our Polish interns who are departing at the end of the week.
